You label all Obama followers as adorators who see nothing wrong with his policies. Do you mean that an Obama supporter like Bill Maher has no opinion, that he unfailingly agrees with Obama's policies? Bet on one thing, though, he'd agree to vote for him again were Obama able to run for a third term.
As I said the other day, why has the right no equivalence to bright witty intelligent commentators like Stewart, Maher, Colbert, Leno, Letterman? All they have is the vulgar and very unfunny Rush Limbaugh.
Bill Maher has no right to complain as he is getting what he voted for!!!

The price of gas is so low due to socialistic government subsidies, just like the price of food.
The market purists never seem to howl about those socialist programs.
And just how does the US government subsidize the oil industry. They get the same TAX DEDUCTIONS any businesses do but the do not get all of the TAX DEDUCTIONS so call green industries get.
And, do you have any idea what the tax is on each gallon of gasoline?
Like for Ohio there is a 28 cents per gallon state tax on top of the federal tax of 18.4 cents for a total of..... 36.4 cents per gallon. The average PROFIT per gallon to gas stations is about 3 cents and to the petroleum company another 3 cents!!!
If any anyone is greedy, it is the state and federal government!!!

In Canada the fuel tax is as high as $1.153 per U.S. gallon and that is why, Jacques, fuel costs more in Canada.
Whereas in Mexico they actually subsidize gasoline to the tune of about 50 cents per US gallon. That, Fake GB, is a real subsidy.

Again, it is obvious you never understood what you read in our Constitution. Bill Clinton never won a majority of the popular vote in either election.

Oh,and in Germany they pay about US$ 8.10 per US Gallon!!!
And;
United Kingdom
Main article: Hydrocarbon oil duty
From 23 March 2011 the UK duty rate for the road fuels unleaded petrol, diesel, biodiesel and bioethanol is GB£0.5795 per litre (£2.63 per imperial gallon or £2.19 per U.S. gallon).[8]
Value Added Tax at 20% is also charged on the price of the fuel and on the duty. An additional vehicle excise duty, depending on a vehicle's CO2 production per kilometre, which depends directly on fuel consumption, is also levied.

Holy moley,$2,000 a pound. And they sell them to China too!

High prices expected for Maine elver season
High prices expected again for start of Maine elver-fishing season

By Clarke Canfield, Associated Press | Associated Press –

PORTLAND, Maine (AP)-- Last year's eel fishing season started strongly when prices rocketed above $2,000 a pound. High prices are again expected when the 2013 season kicks off Friday.
Prices won't be set until the catch gets under way, but eel dealers say there's little doubt that they'll be high.
"If the catches are great, the prices will go lower. If the catches are poor, the prices will go higher," said Mitchell Feigenbaum, owner of Delaware Valley Fish Co., which buys eels in Portland and ships them to China. "There's still ample demand for the product worldwide."
The price that fishermen get for their eels has fluctuated wildly through the years, but spiked two years ago due to an eel shortage from Japan and export restrictions in Europe.
Last year the price reached unprecedented levels. When all was said and done, they were worth $38 million — an average of just under $2,000 a pound — to fishermen, making it the state's second-most-valuable fishery behind lobster in 2012.

I don't think you know what you are talking about. We have to pay higher taxes in Canada. Canada is the 2nd largest country in land area in the world, yet with a population of only 34 million. It's also a country with winters, east to west. south to north. Do you know how much winters cost for each ratepayer? Notwithstanding said winters, I'll give you but one example, and hope this will sink in. In the Eisenhower era, intersate highways were begun, paid for by over 200 million americans. At the same time , the trans-Canada highway was begun, longer distances by the way, paid for my, at that time, 22 million people. YOU figure out how much per American for the interstate highways and how much per Canadian for the Trans-Canada highway.

Same applies to ALL govt services, hospitals, education, sewer and water and police and fire services, vast areas, few people and fewer to contribute. So yes we pay more tax on gas that you do even though you pay less for gas that actually comes from Canada. A Honda Civic costs less in the US than here even though it is built in Canada. We cannot produce in great bulk unless we export 2/3 of what we produce. We have universal health care, which of course comes at a price, and university education whose tuition is fully 1/10th to 1/3 of what yours and made up by...taxes.

So yes, gas costs more, as does other stuff. I do see the results, though, and yes, they are not perfect and there are inefficiencies and graft and fraud, but all in all I think it's pretty much okay. I don't like our present conservative administration but I don't damn it or write that its leader get bjs from his boys. I even hope he succeeds because if he does, then I might too. I do regret that we slipped from 1st best country in the world 10 yrs ago to 13th now, but hey, there are still 182 behind us.

I fully understand what I read. What you don't understand is that there were 3 (THREE) presidential candidates. 43% was a prety good score given the 3-way race. Perot MAY have cost Bush sr the election, not sure, just as Nader was without a doubt responsible for Gore's loss, no doubt about it. Always loved and admired Nader until then, egostistical bugger.

If the shoe fits...just my humble opinion. I disagree with :

1. Editing of posts by either adding or substracting words;

2. Hijacking of monikers. Not only childish, it fosters confusion;

3. Multiple monikers. Not that it's not okay, but what is the purpose? Hiding what is already anonymous?

You still don't seem to get the Electoral College.
You may remember that in 2000 Owl Gore got 48.4% of the popular vote and G.W. Bush got only 47.9% of the popular vote BUT G.W. won the majority of the Electoral College votes!!!
I respect Ralph Nader in that he is not a Limousine Liberal like the vast majority of Democrats are. But I still would not want him for president anymore than I would want a Ron or Rand Paul
